Matthew 1:20-21 ... But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
John 1:1-5; 14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
day it was when Jesus Christ took on human form is uncertain, if it was
at the beginning of summer or on December 24th. But one thing is certain,
He came and gave his life on the cross, rose from the dead on the third
day, gave his disciples a message that everyone who believes on his word
can be set free from his sins.The word, John writes, was in the beginning,
meaning the beginning before all creation.
The Bible says that God's nature is a spirit (John 4:24), und He is so great, that the heavens and all heavens can not contain Him. This God revealed himself to Abraham, the father of many peoples, and gave him a promise that one day his descendants would be as many as the stars in the heavens and the grains of sand in the sea, that one could not count them. God´s promise to mankind who had fallen in sin was to free them from this sinful nature. That had only been possible by sacrificing an innocent, pure lamb. Therefore, under the law this offering was made. However, today we know from the scripture that the blood of lambs and oxen is not pure enough to free us from the power of sin that rules the natural man. He promised, in the scripture that He would come himself to save us. John writes, the word was God and He lives in us. The father of the child was not Joseph, but God himself, the seed that He planted in Mary. When one saw him, one saw the world creator, Jesus Christ!
